Seasonal Touring Pitches
Take the worry, hassle and expense out of towing by leaving your caravan here at Henstent for the whole season! Payment of the seasonal fee allows you to leave your caravan on your chosen pitch for a full season so that you can come and go as often as you please. There is no need to ring to let us know you are coming and there are no per nightly charges when the caravan is in use during chosen season. Electricity is supplied via a 16amp hook up and is not metered - the seasonal fee includes the electricity you use.
Please note: To aid ground maintenance and preserve the life of your awning, awnings are to be taken down, when your caravan is not in use
Please contact for park seasonal tourer rules.
You can still take your caravan off for holidays elsewhere if you want to, your pitch will be waiting for you when you return and you will know that you caravan is safe and secure at Henstent when you are not using it.
Winter storage is available if needed, your caravan can stay on your chosen pitch over the winter, ready for the following season.
As we have no children's playground on site, pitches are available to couples only (you are very welcome to bring your grandchildren, nieces, nephews etc. to stay with you) with UK spec tourers with habitation door on correct side.
Seasonal pitches are available for holiday use only.
We have 25 pitches for tourers, motorhomes or trailer tents all with electric hook-up and shared water points. We also have a very limited number of hardstanding pitches for motorhomes and campervans with 16amp electric hook-up and water hook-up.
The shower block is centrally heated and convenient for all pitches.

Outside the shower block is a covered chemical waste disposal and recycling point. There is a gated dog walk on site which is a very pleasant walk along the riverbank. A longer walk can be started from our pedestrian gate where you can join the public footpath.
The tent dell is in a lovely, secluded position along the river bank.
It is level, has its own fresh water standpipe and is separate from the touring field. It is particularly suited to small tents, although larger tents are accepted by prior appointment.
Barbecues are permitted provided they are raised off the ground to avoid damage to the grass and are not causing a nuisance to other guests.
Please note that because of its location, it is not possible to park next to your tent (parking is very close by).
We do not have electric hook-ups for tents - a courtesy fridge/freezer is located in the shower block for your use free of charge.
Please also be aware of its proximity to the river if intending to bring young children.
Sorry, but we do not allow dogs in the tent dell.
